It’s a fish eat fish world. carved from elk antler. 11” long. I do this same spoon out of wood but decided to test myself and see if I could do it out of elk antler. It worked.

This is a very nice carving. It’s very creative.

Unique, cool design and nicely carved too!

Somehow I missed this. Really cool design and the texture of the antler gives it a certain ‘relic’ look. Love it!
